Space Awareness launches an excellent space science teaching competition!

Throughout Europe (and beyond!) enthusiastic teachers, parents and educators like yourself are finding ways to creatively use the Space Awareness resources in inspiring young people with space science. The Space Awareness project would like to celebrate the benefits that your hard work has achieved, and share your successes so that your peers can learn from them.


Take part in the "Celebrating excellent space science teaching" competition to win now!

There are two main prize categories.

  • Inspiring young people from diverse backgrounds with space science
  • Supporting young people to become aware of space-related careers

The winners will be rewarded with amazing educational prizes, including a Climate Box educational kit, Rosetta plush toy, FirstScope, and some others.

So, whether you teach students from mixed socio-economic communities, manage diverse cultural backgrounds within your classroom, have focused specifically on encouraging girls into space careers, or have creatively met the needs of young people with special needs, you are welcome to share your experiences. Space Awareness is also keen to celebrate actions that have supported young people to aspire to careers in space-related science and technology.

In order to participate in the competition, choose which of the Space Awareness resources work well in your classroom, at home or in another educational environment and think about what evidence you have of your participants' engagement and inspiration when using those resources. Then show and tell a story of your success by submitting your entry in one of categories of the competition.

The deadline for submissions is 14 October 2017.

More details can be found on the official webpage of the competition here.

Space Awareness is funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Programme under grant agreement nº 638653.
